Hmm.. yes. There is some kind of install program in /usr/sbin but it
doesn't seem to be compatible with GNU install.

If you have /usr/ucb/install, add /usr/ucb in your PATH before /usr/sbin
and do make install again.

If you want, install GNU fileutils from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/fileutils.

Or just replace all ``install'' lines in your Makefile with ``cp -f'' and
remove all other ``-'' options from the command line. This should suffice
in most cases.
